Jackie Xu, GANDHI 2017-2018 project leader, had her blog post on “Qualitative Inquiry for Improving Stroke Care in China published by the World Stroke Organization on her summer 2017 research experience in China. Excerpt below. Congrats Jackie!
This summer, I served as an ambassador from my American-based university and navigated this new and sometimes enigmatic partnership between two leading healthcare institutions—Duke and Tiantan—separated by the Pacific Ocean. My work advocating for qualitative research methods in China taught me how to identify project champions and engage key stakeholders. Collaboration, and therefore mutual respect, is the key to research.
